Abstract : The electrolysis of 0.1M NH4F in anhydrous HF at various anodic potentials was studied with emphasis on the analysis of the volatile products. The major products formed in the gas phase were F2, cis-N2F2 and trans-N2F2. The yield of both cis- and trans-N2F2 appears to increase with an increase in anodic bias. Weight loss measurements and galvanostatic oxidation and reduction experiments were performed on nickel electrodes in HF at various water concentrations. Results indicate formation of a thick fluorine-saturated film on the electrode when anodically biased at +6.0 volts in anhydrous HF. Addition of water to the electrolyte inhibits corrosion and film formation.
